LeBron James has finally revealed the Kobe Bryant tattoo he inked on himself to honour his late friend, and NBA Legend.
LeBron James as we reported on Friday, was photographed with Kobe Bryant tattoo, which is a Black Mamba which was Kobe Bryant’s nickname while he was at the Lakers El Segundo, CA training facility.
The tattoo was inked on LeBron James’s left thigh. It also had “Kobe 4 Life,” written below it, with the numbers 8 and 24 and some rose flowers. It was covered with plastic, but he removed the plastic to reveal the full tattoo on his Instagram page on Friday.
